Inking Pink Blog Hop!


Welcome to our Inking Pink Awareness Hop! Our paper crafting community spans the globe and brings all of us together under a common roof. We are grandmothers, granddaughters, mothers, daughters, aunts, sisters, best friends, wives, cyber-friends and design team teammates. Many of us have family or friends touched by breast cancer and all of us want to encourage all of you to check yourself!

This hop will take you around the world, so please sit back with your morning coffee or evening tea and celebrate our stories and projects with us. Some of your fellow crafters along the hop are even offering blog candy! Please give a little comment love to each and every crafter along the way. We hope you enjoy our hop, and most of all we all want YOU to give yourself the greatest gift and do a self-check tomorrow. The more you do it, the more breast aware you will be!

Our hop starts at Patricia's blog, so if you didn't arrive from Bonnie's blog, please start there you don't want to miss what we have for you.


For my card, I used pink with splashes of grey & black as I just love those colors together. I kept it simple by just adding a couple of my rolled paper roses because I really just love this sentiment from the Simple Things {ippity} set which is available on my {ippity} sales blog. Mention the Inking Pink Blog hop and get an additional 10% off the current sale on your entire order, plus a free gift with each purchase.

Please, take a moment during the days of this blog hop and give yourself the gift of a breast exam. It takes no time at all and early detection can mean so much in fighting this horrible disease. My prayers go out to Elise and her family in hopes that she will win the battle against breast cancer.

Thanks for looking, now please head on over to Catherine's blog and see what she has for you.

Sherry said...

I agree so important to do those exams but they too are intimidating. Having a breast reduction I have scare tissue and that can cause thickness and can cause a definite scare. I find it hard to become familar with them.. but thank goodness for men who can keep there hands off of the girls!! Its like getting a double dose of self exams LOL Great blog hop.
